MATHAS AND FEELS AT FREO ARTS CENTRE

Posted in art, fremantle arts centre, culture by freoview on March 26, 2017

Winter is approaching and that means the Sunday concerts at the Fremantle Arts Centre will stop soon, but today it is still on with MATHAS and his intricate lyrics and beats.

He will be joined by the new percussion-electro duo FEELS, so it should be a delightful afternoon in the lovely courtyard.

The cafe, pizza bar and drinks bar are open and so are the galleries.

LUCY PEACH AT FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE

Posted in art, culture, fremantle arts centre by freoview on March 19, 2017

It’s going to be a very pleasant 26 degrees this Sunday so a perfect day to head out to the Fremantle Arts Centre and enjoy the free courtyard music from 2-4 pm by Lucy Peach.

Fresh from winning the WAM Award for Best Folk Act 2016, Lucy will stun you with her epic vocals and evocative songwriting, weaving bitterly sweet tales of wayward love.

The pizza bar, cafe and bar will be open and of course there are exhibitions on, and the craft and gift shop is open.

See you there!

Toby at the Fremantle Arts Centre from 2-4 today

Toby at the Fremantle Arts Centre from 2-4 today

 

It’s going to be a delightful 34 degrees this long weekend Sunday so no excuse whatsoever to stay at home.

There is plenty to do in beautiful Fremantle and tough decisions will have to be made.

The Growers Green Farmers Market is on from 8-12, not far from there the Men’s Shed has Open Day and a tools auction and from 10-11 there is the Bridge Walk Roe 8 protest.

Two great concerts this afternoon. The free Fremantle Arts Centre concert with the powerful Toby at 2 pm and at 3 pm sublime Dutch violinist Rudolf Koelman plays with the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra at the Townhall.

Posted in community, concerts, fremantle, music by freoview on February 18, 2017

It was just yummy crisp when I got up early this morning and we are in for another a great weekend in Freo.

Just a reminder that Davey Craddock and The Pinnacles will be performing at the  Fremantle Arts Centre free Sunday Music session from 2-4 pm.

Hear stories of sleepy coastlines, chaotic boom towns and the people caught in-between as Davey Craddock & The Spectacles (WA) bring their folk rock, alt-country sounds to FAC.

Cafe, bar and pizza bar are open!

There is also a free 6-9 pm free concert up on the deck of the Maritime Museum, but I have no details on who is playing.

Come enjoy Freo. It’s the best place to be on weekends!

It is going to be a pretty good Sunday before the rain comes back next week, so why not enjoy some free concerts in Fremantle today in some of the best locations in town.

From 2-4 pm Pugsley Buzzard from Victoria will perform at the Fremantle Arts Centre and delight you with his big voice, sassy horns, chunky piano and fascinating song writing. He has performed all over the planet from Berlin to New Orleans.

From 6-9 the Harbour Sunday concert is on at the deck of the Maritime Museum, a great spot to watch the sunset!

Bluegrass Parkway, Stoney Joe and DJ Justin Walshe will entertain you there, so that should make for a great end of a beautiful weekend.

SPAN is an intriguing and diverse exhibition at the Fremantle Arts Centre. The show by Andrew Sunley Smith, Tanya Lee, Clyde McGill, Susanna Castleden and Olga Cironis opened last night and is well worth a visit.

Combine it with the Sunday Music Session in the courtyard tomorrow from 2-4 pm and you’ll have a great creative Freo afternoon.

I am not sure what the weather is going to be like today as the rain did not arrive in Fremantle last night, so take the risk and head out to the Fremantle Arts Centre for the Sunday music session from 2-4 pm.

The Red Dirt Crew from the Norther Territory will perform hip hop, some in traditional language and about Dreamtime stories. This group comes from three remote communities, stretching 700 kilometres.

Also on this afternoon is our Freo songwriter folk singer Donna Simpson, so extend the One Day in Freo day into today and have some more fun!
